**The UK's Most Theatrical Genesis Tribute Band**
The Book of Genesis are truly a revelation for all Genesis fans: recreating the musical brilliance of England's finest prog rock band covering the Gabriel years as well as some of the best songs from the Collins period. The Book of Genesis cover a wide repertoire from the first album onwards but focused on the progressive rock era up until Steve Hackett's departure.
The Book of Genesis performance encompasses all the exciting hallmarks of the Gabriel period (masks, costumes, acting) as well as multi-screen slideshows and other special effects, and they continue this on into the Collins period. The Book of Genesis show features much of the original equipment that Genesis used including the famous Gretsch special edition drum kit that Phil Collins played, an array of keyboards to recreate Tony Banks unique keyboard sounds, the double-neck guitar and bass pedals of Mike Rutherford and the black Gibson Les Paul played by Steve Hackett.
The band have played twice at Godalming's Charterhouse School - the place where the original members of Genesis first met. These concerts saw them raise money for Help for Heroes, as well as Great Ormond Street Children's hospital. The Book of Genesis plan to return to Charterhouse in 2015 for another special concert.
Anyone who came to see The Book of Genesis at their final show of 2013 at the Farncombe Music Club will have noted a very special audience member - Steve Hackett himself. The band have also received great support from other friends and associates of Genesis.
Now launching into 2014 with a re-vamped set list, The Book of Genesis start the year with a highly-anticipated show in the perfect setting of the Windlesham Club & Theatre. Prepare for stories, costumes, humour, and wonderful musicianship from arguably the most theatrical and dramatic of UK Genesis tribute bands…
